Easter Impression Obsession

Sorry for being absent for so long.. Haven't been feeling well, fighting the sinus infection..

I am still trying to get "back to basics" with the regular size cards. I made these cards yesterday with the new stamps from Impression Obsession. The designer paper is by Darci, it has nice glossy finish and the colors are just so soft. The images were heat embossed on the glossy paper and watercolored in with the Memento re-inkers. The borders on the first card (on the front and inside of the card) were done with Martha Stewart punch. On the second card the sentiment was stamped on the satin blue ribbon. Pearls in the corners are from Hero Arts. Corners were punched out with the new dual corner punch from Tonic.

I am really happy how these cards have turned out, they actually look much better in real life.

These are two of the cards for my upcoming "Easter and Spring Impression Obsession" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. At the class we will make three cards, I am still working on the third one.. This class is scheduled for:

Tuesday, March 31st, 12 pm to 3 pm
Wednesday, April 1st, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for the class.

Card one.. I think this one would work for a Mother's Day card as well..

Glad you're feeling a bit better. I'm still fighting being sick too... my cold went straight up into my sinuses on Sunday. But there's no better cure for the sniffles like some good creativity! See ya tomorrow. :)

You were missed of course. But I bet anyone that has ever had a sinus infection understands how badly they make you feel. Love your cards and glad you are feeling like sharing again.

My daughter & I both enjoyed the class. What I love about your classes is that I get to use some new medium that I haven't used before. I hope you are feeling better.
